The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is undertaking an integrated evaluation of its laboratories to strengthen the management, effectiveness, and efficiency of its laboratory network and to enhance its capabilities for research and other laboratory-based scientific and technical activities. EPA is collecting and analyzing data on the operating costs, workforce, facilities, and science contributions of its laboratory facilities. The evaluation is also intended to address US Government Accountability Office (GAO) recommendations that EPA improve cohesion in managing and operating agency laboratories and to help the EPA laboratory enterprise respond to change and be equipped to handle emerging scientific challenges.
